Benicio DID bring the lobster and ghee. We had 50 martinis together. I think I passed out after that. Not sure what hubby thought :ph34r:

....and to quote Carla...'' I've heard martinis are like breasts ... one isn't enough and three are too many'' :lol: ..so god only knows what happens after 50!! :ph34r:(hubby does not need to know about your little hallucinogenic episodes))

Here's one for you: Good day, Sir

Why, how kind Miss Beverly Good Day to you too :D

And, Nikki, hey, I've been a stay-at-home mom since 1988! It didn't cause brain deterioration for me ... but I did home school for 10 of those years. ;)

<_< ....and so it seems I have no valid excuse for my neurological defecits....HARUMPH!!!!

Lobster sounds good ... shellfish started bothering me though ... :( ... but I snuck some when we were in Phoenix last month and it didn't bother me at all ... can treating the Lyme be taking care of this? Hope so, because real lobster would be good instead of this imaginary stuff!

AGAIN!!! no real excuse....but have never been able to eat shellfish without vomiting profusely about 10 mins after :blink: ...why is that???? :unsure:

Susan, the part I don't like about alcohol is how it alters you mind ... I like the taste .. how weird is that?

Whereas I don't like the taste,...but quite enjoy the feeling :lol::lol:

Tee hee! Did I say 50 martinis :blink: ? No, after 1 I'd be under the weather. Right now after 2, I'd be under the floorboards.

LOL :lol: Love that martini quote!!

Your two contrasting positions on alcohol bring me to what could be a telling symptom.

Or maybe the 3rd position is Pseuzee's liking BOTH taste & feeling.

Anyway, maybe I fill the remaining quadrant of this 2x2 matrix. (Or maybe that's total bs now that I think of it)

So, tho I would enjoy both the taste & feeling, every time I test anything alcoholic, I'm somehow suddenly *unable* to get even the slightest buzz!

Has anyone heard of this? I was quite able to feel the effects throughout the 70s. 80s. 90s and the early aughts.

Having zero alcohol for betw 1 & 2 yrs SHOULD'VE made for great ease in feeling the effects. But it's like it's just not digested or metabolized in a normal way.

I'm highly curious whether this means something. It must mean *something*!

Boooooooo! :(

I'm sure I'm not alone in feeling deprived (or is that depraved?) :rolleyes::huh::ph34r::wacko:

Now I feel bad for talking up Firefox. I've been using it since beta (pre-release) and never had nor heard of a problem like that.

Grrrrrrrrrrrr

That SO blows! I can't imagine what went wrong and wish I could help solve it and keep u away from bug-filled/security-hole-laden IE.

Cue bad (as in the proper meaning ;) ) joke:

A brain walks into a bar and says, "I'll have a pint of beer please."

The barman looks at him and says "Sorry, I can't serve you."

"Why not?" askes the brain.

"You're already out of your head."

It's a Richard sighting!

''It's Dad's fault'' is my kids favourite saying.....and he passively accepts this :lol:

Hubby more actively accepts this and admits it's true.

Tee hee! Did I say 50 martinis :blink: ? No, after 1 I'd be under the weather. Right now after 2, I'd be under the floorboards.

I miss my cosmopolitans!!!!!!!!!!!! Someday......

Me, too. I love cosmos! There's a drink at a restaurant in Bloomington (Adam and my picture is on their website! LOL --Malibu Grill) ... It's called a Flirtini (of course that's what I'd drink! LOL). It has vodka, cranberry, champagne (which fizzes when they shake it) and pineapple juice. Very tasty.

LOL :lol: Love that martini quote!!

I think it's a matter of having so much brain fog that it makes no difference at all whether you're drunk or sober.

I've tried firefox but didn't give it much of a chance.

I'm on ebay a lot (or should I say hubby is :rolleyes: ) and I like the ebay tool bar that tells you whether it is legit. I didn't figure that out with firefox.

OMG! :blink:

I leave you ladies (and Tom - really no relation - I'm not the least bit Saxy) to your own devices...and now I may need to quit my job and come back here full-time to keep an eye on you all!

Unlike most of you (Tom might be excepted) I am growing some moobs :blink::unsure:<_< and me knickers a bit on the snug side (around the waist ;) )

FYI - Some trivial info (only a devoted husband would know) the bra in question is made by Playtex my wife swears by them (and at me if I stare!) :ph34r: She buys said OtSBH's (Over the Shoulder Boulder Holders) at Kohl's. Glad I could help. I'm all for well fitted unmentionables...Bra fitter at VS...now there's a job :rolleyes: Must...stop...now...

Carry on!

Lucky you. The FTC has put the poo-poo on Whole Foods buying up Wild Oats...until it all gets sorted out Whole foods won't be expanding in the US - but will be expanding overseas. Lucky you! There isn't one in my area, but my local supermarket carries Wild Oats products.
